In our «Marvel Mal Anders» series, comic expert Sebastian gets to the bottom of the comic company’s earlier films from a time when absolutely nobody thought of an MCU. In the past few weeks he has also had to endure some bad films – like the last two times with a really bad Captain America . While he was able to get a lot more out of the early adventures of Spider-Man and Doctor Strange , today comes a real highlight of this series:
» The Return of the Uncanny Hulk » (the original German title of the film, now also known as «The Return of the Incredible Hulk») from 1988 is the start of a trilogy worth seeing about the Green Rage Monster, of which there is no longer a solo film in the MCU becomes. After the end of his » Hulk » series, leading actor Bill Bixby didn’t want to put up with the fact that the story wasn’t told to the end and managed to get these films off the ground.

In it he again plays Dr. Banner, while we see Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk — and a special highlight: With Thor there is another Marvel hero on board (which is why the film was sometimes marketed as «Thor 2000»). So there was a team film of the two long before “ Thor 3: Day of Decision ”. In the video, our Marvel expert explains why it was so successful, why Sebastian has so much fun with the film and which «X-Men»(!) references there are to discover.
